  • Investor Showcase: Kerv Ring, The world's first contactless payment ring

    N.B. Please register for this event via our Eventbrite page (https://kerv.life/KervLDN19Feb2018). ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi Everyone, Kerv Wearables will be hosting an investor showcase in The City, from 5:30pm on Monday 19th February. Supporters and prospective investors will meet the Kerv Wearables non-exec and management teams, receive a complimentary Kerv Ring, and learn about the business and product – including how Kerv Ring can link to over 80% of UK consumer banks via the Apple Pay model*, with the remaining market being addressable via a Mastercard prepaid account. The Opportunity The speed and convenience of contactless payments has resulted in its rapid growth, with 2016 seeing the volume of contactless payments triple within Europe. This technology has driven payments from pockets and wallets to wearable devices. In 2016, the global wearables market leapt to a value of $16.2b, with one of the largest jumps in the European arena belonging to the UK, with an increase of 45%, selling a staggering 13m devices. Kerv Wearables was formed to exploit the opportunity this new market offers. After soft-launching Kerv Ring (as a prepaid Mastercard product) in the UK, and following successful trials with banks in Australia and the Netherlands, we now wish to rapidly expand the business into new territories. The Investment • We are raising £1 million (£8 million valuation) to expand the business into markets with high adoption of contactless payments (Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Western Europe) • Interested parties wishing to commit to an investment at the event will be offered a 20% valuation discount • Minimum investment parcel is 1% (no maximum) • Voting rights are subject to negotiation • Existing Shareholder Cap Table will be available at the investor showcase event The Event The investor showcase will begin at 5.30pm on Monday 19th February at the offices of our advisors, Grant Thornton UK LLP at: The Lounge, Ground Floor, 30 Finsbury Square, EC2A 1AG.
